George Soros experiencing a “massive heart attack” on Christmas Eve 2017 is a death hoax. There is no truth to a report that the Hungarian-American billionaire of liberal causes suffered a life-threatening cardiac condition just before Christmas 2017.
Where did this death hoax originate? YourNewsWire.com published the hoax on Dec. 25, 2017, reported that Soros had suffered a massive heart attack in Hungary on Christmas Eve and then underwent triple coronary artery bypass surgery soon afterward. You can read the death hoax below.
George Soros suffered a “massive heart attack” while inspecting a new faculty building at his private university in Budapest, Hungary on Sunday morning, according to Hungarian reports.
Soros had been complaining of “severe indigestion” and “foggy thinking” in the early hours of the day, according to reports, and began to feel unwell while meeting staff in the new faculty building, announcing that “the hand of God has seized me by the neck.”
Dismissing suggestions he was reacting badly to his traditional Christmas Eve lunchtime meal, Soros staggered outside in search of fresh air, before collapsing just outside the gymnasium of the Central European University.
The globalist billionaire, who recently donated $18 billion to international liberal causes, collapsed against a wall, before slumping to the ground where he was found “lying on his side, whimpering softly.”
“Quick-thinking actions” by “trained gymnasium staff” saved Soros’s life and “expert CPR” helped the 87-year-old billionaire survive and avoid brain damage, according to reports in Hungary’s liberal media.
After 15 minutes of CPR the paramedics arrived and took over. Soros was given the defibrillator three times and they managed to restart his heart and take him to a private residence where he where he underwent triple coronary artery bypass surgery.
However, there is no truth to the above story, according to Snopes. For one thing, there has been no legitimate news coverage of the death of Soros. No news outlets, in Hungary or elsewhere, have reported that the billionaire had suffered a serious heart attack or had undergone cardiac surgery. Your News Wire is a fake news site that peddles in sensationalized and fabricated clickbait stories.
Here are some examples of people sharing the death hoax on social media.
